2012 Clay Court: Excellent rating in Great Northwest Wine

Our 2012 Clay Court received an “Excellent” rating at GreatNorthwestWine.com:

“Adam Campbell and his parents purchased this Parrett Mountain property in 2009 — eight years after it was planted to Pommard, Dijon 115 and 777 clones. His folks loved the setting so much they made it their home and built a tennis court, hence the name. Their harvest at 1.75 tons per acre from this stunning vintage explains Bing cherry and dusty blackberry aromatics with cotton candy, minerality and mincemeat. That dark fruit and minerality carries onto the palate with plum skin tannins and pie cherry acidity.” – Andy Perdue


Great Northwest Invitational – Best White Wine!

2012 Pinot Gris

“This is the quintessential Northwest Pinot Gris, and it is perhaps the most consistently outstanding example to come out of Oregon, thanks to second-generation winemaker Adam Campbell. Minerality, lemon, lime and a tiny whiff of pear lead off, followed in the mouth by crisp, mouth-watering acidity and more lemon and lime.  The finish departs with a final bit of yellow grapefruit and slate rock in this fine Willamette Valley Pinot Gris.”
